Just ask to cancel the order. Explain why. They usually understand. If you are nice to them they are usually nice back! Works for me.

I did not expect this to get posted at all haha well anyway it was actually a pink unicorn onesie (yes I'm a child inside), I'm definitely going to buy it because it's not the seller's fault and my best friend is going to buy it off me for a onesie party she's going to so I'll just change the address to her house, no harm done. I'm very surprised I won the auction because I am always outbid at the last minute, the demand for pink unicorns probably isn't very high. Thanks for your comments, even

Return the item you bought while you were out and about. If you've already opened the packaging, wait until you get the item from eBay and return that as the original to the store you bought the other from.

I guess eBay has changed since last time I used it. When I sold stuff on eBay, I had to pay eBay based on how much it sold for (or based on the starting bid, it's been a while). There was no "oopsie! I take that back."

I'm assuming it takes just as much time, effort, and energy than spelling correctly, 45, which is why you disdain doing so.

Take back the one you bought in the store. Unless you were dumb enough to open it right away while you had an active bid on ebay on that same thing... in which case you pretty much deserve it.

30, try paying attention to context. 5 said he could return the item to the store unless he already opened it. 11 is saying that even if he did open the one from the store, he return the unopened one from eBay to the store instead.

Op did NOT bid because he thought he would be outbid. He bid because he wanted the item and the went into town and ending up finding the item. Bought it in town because he thought he would have been out bid on eBay. Next time READ the FML before you call the OP an asshole.

well, your point is completely invalid. Suddenly OP gets the bad rap? if there was an item online, and you placed a bid, would you sit there meticulously watching the seconds pass by on the bid time? or run errands.

Why does that person on eBay have to deal with reentering the item for sale because the OP backed out and couldn't wait to check the bid status before purchasing the other item? There's a time limit to see if you won or not.

I don't know about you guys, but I don't bid til there's only a couple minutes left. So I guess I'm one of those people that sit and wait. Having to deal with assholes that back out after they've already won is a pain in the ass. OP shouldn't have bought on impulse, it's completely his fault.

I'm curious what this unnamed item could be. Depending what the item is you could use it as a gift for a friend. Or you could just resale one of the items on eBay and hope for a profit.
